PackDash, a third-party logistics partner for small to mid-sized e-commerce companies, is moving its headquarters from Chicago and establishing a West Coast delivery operation in Tucson.

PackDash leased 6,000 square feet for its new operation at 820 E. 16th Street, south of downtown Tucson. The company plans to add 50 jobs, including managers, directors, warehouse and additional executive-level positions, with an estimated 10-year economic impact of $84 million, Sun Corridor Inc., said in a newsletter.

Services include standard e-commerce fulfillment; creation of premium unboxing experiences; e-commerce technology integration; inventory onboarding; two-day delivery; and fast, personalized service for companies shipping fewer than 20,000 packages per month. 

“We do things our competitors won’t. That’s because we take an entirely new approach to meeting the needs of startups and brands who can’t satisfy minimum requirements of large shippers,” said Dave DiCosola, co-founder, PackDash. “Tucson is a great location for our West Coast customers and offers unbeatable connections to Mexico and China through the Port of Tucson. In terms of a headquarters, it’s been a dream of ours to ‘land and expand’ in Tucson, and to mold and shape its future with our team of tech-focused entrepreneurs.”

In addition to Sun Corridor Inc., Arizona Commerce Authority, Pima County, city of Tucson and the Tucson Metro Chamber played an active role in the project, the news release said.
